Sikkuy-Aufoq was founded in 1991 as the first shared Jewish-Arab advocacy organization. Its founding marked the first time Jewish and Arab-Palestinian citizens together created an organization working  for equality using advocacy tools targeting policy change on a national level. For the past year, we’ve been digitizing archival documents tracing key moments from our 30-year history. Read more about the organization’s history and the ways it reflects the larger history of Jewish-Arab relations in Israel, and stay tuned as our digital archive makes its way online.
